With Iron Man 2 now in theaters, you’ll want to take a look at these great superhero movies from Amazon. From grim vigilantes like Batman and Blade to high-flying superheroes like Superman and Iron Man, the selection of superhero movies at Amazon is truly impressive. I’ve listed ten of the best-selling items below, but a little time searching the site will reveal many more. Buy a couple of these, click on the DVD or Blu-ray player, and pretend that you’re a superhero for a day (I do it all the time).

Each item includes a link that will take you straight to its Amazon page, and we receive a small commission if you decide to buy something. That’s not a bad thing, though, as we rely on this type of income to stay in business. Why not be a hero and help us (and yourself) out? I bet Batman would buy something, especially at the unbeatable prices offered by Amazon.
